A lone woman was arrested after she wore a mask with "people" word on it and stood silently in front of Gaysorn Plaza at the Ratchaprasong Intersection in an apparent symbolic protest against the coup.
The woman, who appeared in her 50s, did not say any word. She just flashed a victory sign and stood there for about five minutes. She then removed the mask and walked toward the Pratunam Intersection.
She was arrested by police and taken away on a police motorcycle. Initially, she refused to allow police to her into custody, saying she was expressing her right as a Thai citizen.
